Jeremy--
Best of success to you with this event!
We're doing our FGBIV fundraiser that due to having an Oly. workshop on the 26th.
I really admire the way you are spearheading CrossFit/Strongman events down there! Keep up the great work!!!!

Re: 1st Annual Ft. Myers, Fl. Strongman Contest

Thanks for your support and encouragement. It's tough here in Ft. Myers. Not that many people get it here. Too many commercial gyms, older adult communities and not enough young people interested in powerlifting/CrossFit and Strongman training. Tough Market but I'm trying.
